Parliament returns on October 13th after the conference season recess. On Monday MPs will be voting on a motion to recognise Palestinian statehood, which Kerry will be supporting. There will also be debates this week on devolution, the minimum wage, the NHS, cycling and the national pollinator strategy, as well as questions to the Home Office, the Deputy Prime Minister, DCMS and the Prime Minister, where Kerry is second on the Order Paper.
Kerry will also be meeting students from St Brendan's Sixth Form College, who are visiting parliament. She will also be focusing on food waste/ food poverty this week: attending a breakfast/ launch of new report from Food Cycle, the food waste charity of which she has been patron for a number of years; chairing a food waste event organised by the All Party Sustainable Resource Group; and meeting the "holiday hunger" campaign on food poverty during school holidays. Kerry will also be attending the AGM of the new Protect Our Waves All-Party Group, which has been set up with support from Surfers Against Sewage, as well as meetings with Christian Aid and Christian Solidarity Worldwide. Another meeting is with the Music Venue Trust, of which Kerry is also a patron; she has been working with them on trying to save small venues like Bristol's the Fleece.
In Bristol, Kerry will be joining campaigners against plans for a new drive-thru McDonalds, who are meeting to protest at 11am outside the old Tile Centre on Fishponds, which is the proposed site. She will also be on a panel at the Festival of Ideas, entitled "What has the Coalition Government Done for You?" with David Aaronovitch, Zoe Williams, and local MPs Charlotte Leslie and Stephen Williams. On the Sunday she will be speaking and answering questions at All Saints Church in Fishponds, as part of Christian Aid's Hunger for Justice campaign.
